Ruth is doing well, she did not cry at night after her surgery, but her bedmate was in a lot of pain and was crying the whole night so she did not sleep very well. She finally fell asleep in the morning and this meant that Ruth and everybody else in her cubicle could sleep, that's why she looks very peaceful! Thank you for your continued support in terms of prayers and in kind for her healing!
We are praying that Ruth won't have too much pain when she wakes up and that her recovery will be as smooth as all the other times she has had surgery. Please friends, remember to say just a simple prayer for Ruth, for her healing and restoration!
Today, Ruth came back for yet another procedure and we are so happy about all the things God has done for her and is continuing to do. Her mum says she is very happy because of all the improvements she can see in her daughter. We were particularly happy because Ruth can stand on her feet without struggling like she used to before treatment. She has a beautiful and resilient heart and we are grateful to God for that!
Ruth has had two surgeries at CURE before, and now she is here to have the third. She still has to go through at least three more and we hope and pray that she will feel God's presence with her throughout this process. Ruth's mum is very excited because she can see all the changes her daughter is going through and she thanks God for everything. Please friends, do not stop praying for Ruth. She is a little girl with big dreams! Together, we can help her accomplish them!
Stephen’s mum had a few questions about how the treatment process was going and it was explained to in detail by one of our rehab nurses, George Njuru. Stephen has to wear another cast in the treatment process continues and we pray that God gets rid of any doubts his parents may have about his progress.
Rahab is happy because in her opinion her daughter is a symbol of hope for her and for everyone who gets the chance to interact with her. “You could be having a bad day, but her smile will cheer you up.” - Rahab.
Leah had a cast replacement and she will continue with the correction procedure until she is completely healed.
Victor began his clubfoot correction journey today and his parents are excited about it because they know their son will have a chance to be normal like every other child!
David doesn't like people at the hospital because he recalls feeling so much pain the first time he came here for surgery. When we saw him, he was a little grumpy from hunger, but he couldn't be given food because he's scheduled to go into theatre. Our doctor wanted to take a look under his cast and make sure everything looked as it should and we're happy to report that it did! David and his mom Martha have already been discharged for home, relieved and encouraged. Thank you for your prayers and support!

Why I Support CURE
Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.Chris Tomlin
